You swear you recall nothing at all
That could make you come back down
You made up your mind to leave it all behind
Now you're forced to fight it out

You fall away from your past
But it's following you now
You fall away from your past
But it’s following you

You left something undone, it's now your rerun
It's the one you can't erase
You should have made it right, so you wouldn't have to fight
To put a smile back on your face

You fall away from your past
But it's following you
You fall away from your past
But it’s following you now
You fall away
You fall away

Something I've done that I can't outrun
Something I’ve done that I can’t outrun
Maybe you should wait maybe you should run
But there's something you've said that can't be undone

And you fall away from your past
But it's following you
You fall away from your past
It’s following you now

You fall away from your past
It's following you
You fall away form your past
It’s following you

You fall away
It’s following you
You fall away
It’s following you
You fall away
It’s following you
You fall away

    You broke up with someone you loved deeply and left him/her in the past... Not because you wanted to but because you felt you had to. The relationship, the love wasn't really finished and now it haunts you.

    Lol, I'll agree with that. I love this song because it seriously describes my life. I couldn't stop singing it after I heard it. Their songs are so addictive.
